Sandals

sandals-005It’s almost 70 degrees here in Alabama this afternoon. Sun shining. Blue sky. Even though it’s deceptive and temporary, you do sort of feel that spring may be coming after all. Good thing I grabbed these sandals at TJ Maxx this past week, ’cause once the weather starts to warm up the cute sandals go fast. Summer ’08 was rough on my sandal collection — my most treasured black and my favorite brown pairs had to go. And it was time, I admit, but still sad. And scary, too, as in, “I wonder if I’ll be able to replace them?” Since I’m picky about sandals —  no flip-flopping sounds (I like only my flip-flops to flip-flop), no sounds of any kind and comfort, comfort, comfort (cuteness goes without saying) — it’s hard to find what I want. Luckily, TJ’s was there for me yet again, solving a fashion problem at a super price. Of course, sometimes shoes do turn on you and what you thought would be the perfect pair turn out not to be after all, but I have high hopes for these. We’ll see.

  1. Stopping by from SITS.

    It was deceivingly warm here today too!

    Love the sandals, especially the black ones with the buckles on the side. They are so cute. You have made me want to go spring shoe shopping!!

  2. Both pairs are too cute. Love the black.

    We wear sandals here in Arizona pretty much year round. So I totally understand the need for plenty of cute and comfy ones. I’m with you on noisy flip flops. they are awful.

  3. Michele — Thanks! I love flip-flopping at the beach, but the sound otherwise just makes me cringe. And I think I would love to live someplace where you can wear sandals all the time! Lucky you.

  4. I had the same impulse this weekend. It is warm here too, and I almost fell for a pair of coral fringe thongs at Target. I resisted, but I don’t know for how much longer.

    Those are cute!
